The 66,000 capacity Allianz Arena, at Fröttmaning,
will host the Opening Ceremony of the 2006 World Cup Finals. Unlike the Olympic stadium,
there is no running track and no curve at the ends of the ground so fans are actually
closer to the field of play.

Neo-Gothic Town Hall (Altes Rathaus). Easily reached on foot from the station, this is

Eating in Munich:
Popular restaurant located near the Rathaus on Marienplatz.
It is never easy to understand the menu of a traditional Bavarian restaurant.
Unfortunately, Bavarian restaurants do not usually provide bilingual menus, only those
affiliated to a hotel usually do. However, that should not deter you from trying Bavaria's
unique cuisine - this little glossary can help you to find your personal favourite.
Drinking in Munich:
When it comes to drinking beer in Munich, this is the number one address; just aroung the
corner from Marienplatz, at Platzl.
In Munich the atmosphere of the many bars differs immensely. Some are cafés and bars at
the same time and make for a more relaxed, quiet evening. Others are stylish meeting
points for the rich and beautiful.
The tradition has spread all over Germany, but you won't get the genuine thing anywhere
else but in Munich: Biergärten.
If you'll be doing a lot of beer drinking in Munich, you might want to
pack a copy of The
Beer Drinker's Guide to Munich.
